Marc Quinn and Figurative Sculpture
Sheffield´s Collections: George Fullard
Walking Man was first made in 1957 in cement, and was not cast in bronze until 1985 after being bought by the Sheffield City Council. The figure is slightly less than life size and wears a tightly buttoned coat with the collar open and turned up. The man's stride swings his full length coat slightly forward while the backward tilt of his upper body creates a counter motion. His hands are not clearly defined, but his bare head is distinctive, being sharply featured and set on a long neck.
